Type A vs. Type B personalities: how they differ
Each type has its strengths and weaknesses, and according to Blaylock-Solar, Type Bs thrive when they can connect with others, cooperate, and help keep the peace. Their strength lies in their balanced character, patience and ability to adapt to different situations.
“I would say their big strength is that they’re great at building relationships,” she says, adding that they’re also creative and can come up with great ideas.
However, depending on who you ask, some may say that certain Type B traits can be weaknesses. Although they are easy-going and stress-free, they can procrastinate, put the needs of others before their own, and may even come across as lazy.
“Procrastination and making sure they are prioritizing their own needs and not working just to meet the needs of others can be issues and areas for growth,” says Blaylock-Solar, adding, “If they’re constantly putting the needs of others before their own, then their needs may not be met, so they definitely need to find a balance with that.”
